Howdy doody everyone.. Quite exciting news isnt it!
I would just laugh if someone suggested this for a race series in this country but - its Disney so its all LALALA not real !
Seriously though, surely for the price you must get the 5 medals and 5 tech shirts ? Will need a spare room for the Disney running tops this rate LOL
I haven't been able to settle back into work properly since I heard the news! It took some time to accept that we shouldn't/couldn't do the 2014 Goofy as my eldest shouldn't be taken out of high school - but just as we had accepted it they come up with an official Dopey - with a 10K in it!
Ever since then I have been should we/shouldn't we -ing and researching flights and Disney accommodation!!!
My 2 can do the 10K too as the age limit is 10 years old - which is another reason to go for it (or maybe we would be accused of child cruelty???!!!). But they want to do it!
MM - I assume you will go for the Dopey?
I only heard about this last year and immediately started planning on doing the Goofy in 2015. I havent run a Marathon yet and have only completed one HM (souvenir of which is my Avatar pic!!) The Dopey sounds even better but my wife has just told me that as our son will be in Year 10 we wont be granted holiday for him. Seems a shame to go without him
Rich - our high school is the same - absolutely no holiday granted for Year 10 and 11. Up to then it is frowned upon but not totally banned, so we could do it as ours would be in Year 8 - but I wouldn't feel comfortable about it.
If you started training now, you would be fine for the 2014 Goofy/Dopey if you could organise things for then? Then your son would be in Year 9 and not totally banned from going? Just a thought.
MM - yes, it's very difficult to be sensible when you have such a good time over there - so tempting. Hope your hubby's back improves quickly.
C33 - I'm wondering if the Dopey will be a one-off for 2014. 2015 is the Goofy 10 year anniversary and I don't think they would want the Dopey to detract from the Goofy in that year???
Tesco Mastercard, put all your expenses on there, get Virgin Airmiles with the Clubcard points = free Virgin flights to Disney!
C33 - you're a young buck you have plenty of time to tick them all off
GG -I'd totally forgotten my Virgin points... Off now to check the balance !
I found this thread last October, and have been lurking ever since.
You have inspired me back into training. Originally for the Goofy and now for the Dopey
I thought I'd join in to say that you can actually use Tesco clubcard points on Virginholidays.co.uk too, not just airmiles. My old vouchers should make a nice big dent in the cost of lovely Florida trip.
Now just need to make sure I get a ticket. I have no doubt the inclusion of the Minnie 10K and Dopey will make it a LOT more popular.
Hi Bullit. Glad you've joined in - and brilliant that you're going for the Dopey! You have probably noticed that I (and a few others) get very excited about the Disney races so this should tell you that you will have a fantastic time over there!
HI Bullit - welcome to the house of mouse
